In a week already heavy with the promotion of upcoming Batman events, DC has released a preview of pages from July's Detective Comics #1023, a tie-in issue to James Tynion IV's "The Joker War" event story arc.
Before the main "The Joker War" storyline kicks off in the pages of Batman #95 on July 21, Detective Comics #1023 spotlights the Harlequin of Hate, a.k.a. the Joker, "tying into his master plan to end Batman once and for all."
"And Batman will have to ally with Harvey Dent, a.k.a. Two-Face to survive what The Joker has in store!"
Here's a first look at artwork from the issue from Brad Walker and Andrew Hennessey, from an issue written by Peter J. Tomasi.
